    a European or English make, but what branch.........

    The sword 'knot' is not a typical English style, but the grip is.

    I think that is Austrian - haven't got my reference books to hand will dig them out tomorrow.

    I believe this is exactly what it is - an M1861 Austrian Officers sword.

    Did a search for similar swords and found this
    is indeed the same type.........!
